I love this stuff, it is the ultimate flattering eyeshadow and so easy to blend. Love it on its own for daytime, but makes a great base for nighttime eye makeup...all rounder which I love and doesn't crease

This is my favorite shadow to wear alone, a pale shimmery peachy-pink neutral shade. It is so gorgeous paired with dark brown eyeliner and black mascara. Very buttery application, easily breakable though. Mine is already crumbling around the edges, and it's stored in my bathroom and doesn't travel. Will repurchase when I do run out.

This shadow is great as an all over base for other shadows or if you want a really subtle shimmer on your eyes. It is slightly warmer than my skin tone and looks amazing when mixed with another colour to line. I woud definitely buy this again as it's such a great basic and amakes your eyes look bigger.

I love this eyeshadow.
It's a simple shimmery light pink that brightens up the eyes while remaining fairly subtle.
So versatile. I like to use it both as a wash and to add a little bit of interest to dark or flat eyeshadows. You can also use this as a highlight if you're careful enough with it.
BeneFit velvet eyeshadows in general are a great deal. There's a good amount of product for a cheaper price than most mid to high end shadows of the same kind. The formula is super silky, comfortable, and stays put for a pretty decent amount of time. c:

The texture and quality of benefit velvet eyeshadows is great! True the price may be more than MAC and Urban Decay, but you are getting 3 grams of product. Leggy on my eyes is a frosty white and no pink. Very boring color and I feel like it can be easily duped. Will not repurchase.

This is a gorgeous shade - I wont describe it because others have done a great job at that, but I will say, darker ladies beware. I am NC35 with dark brown eyes. This shadow hardly shows up on me, although it swatched beautifully on the back of my hand. I am surprised that the colour shows up so pale on my eyes. Im really disappointed as it looks like a lovely shadow. Very buttery and easy to blend...but not for medium to darker skin tones. I tried it using a NYX jumbo pencil in Milk but it didnt make much difference...so this is going up for swap :-(

I love the Velvet Touch eyeshadows. The formula is silky, easy to apply, and long lasting. If I use primer underneath, it won't budge no matter what. I have olive skin, nearly black hair and very dark eyes, and this shows as a slightly shimmery pink that brightens up my whole face. I wear it alone on my lids with off-black eyeliner and black mascara. I add pink blush and lipgloss and I'm done. I highly recommend this shadow, especially if you have dark hair and eyes.

A good staple neutral shadow with nice texture and good staying power on it's own - excellent over a primer. I've had this shadow since they were first released and used it a lot at the time but, as always, put it aside when new shadows came along but recently I pulled this one out again and it is back to being an everyday lid colour for me (or highlight if I'm doing a darker eye), it really brightens up the eye and I fine i don't need to pair it with anything else as it does just enough on it's own. I would repurchase.

Very flattering shade with just the right amount of shimmer. But beware the velvety soft texture of this eyeshadow will break up VERY easily if dropped! I am sad to say my Leggy is all smashed up due to being in my purse. If you like to carry your go-to makeup in your purse this eyeshadow just won't do.

I got this as a part of the Benefit Celebutante Palette. This is a very pretty natural flesh beige color with just a hint of pink (on my skin) with very fine shimmer, satin smooth finish. I can use this as an overall lid color or use to highlight my eyebrow bone. the color match my skintone very well and blends perfectly. Perfect when matched with Dandy Brandy eyeshadow. I would repurchase again.

What a fab eye-shadow to receive as a pressie! :) 'Leggy' is a truly beautiful, silky-soft eyeshadow which just glides over the skin and has top-notch staying-power when applied over my Urban Decay Primer Potion. It shows up on me as a very pale shimmery peach colour, great for giving my eyes a bright, refreshed look. The shimmer is subtle, so the effect is really natural and fresh-looking. I think the colour is similar to Urban Decay's 'Sin' eyeshadow.
I'm finding I'm using this a lot. I don't often wear bright eye-makeup and for everyday I prefer a natural look. All I need is 'Leggy' and a slick of clear or black mascara and I instantly feel polished!
The package is cute as well as nice and sturdy. It's an expensive shadow but you do get a decent amount of it and it's such excellent quality that I will definitely re-purchase once mine has run out.LOVE IT!
EDIT: Unfortunately, as someone else mentioned, my shadow crumbled too by being bumped about in my make-up bag. So the packaging is not as sturdy as I thought.Oh well, it's still useable!

I love this eyeshadow. I have it in Leggy and a friend of mine has it in Bo Peep. These eyeshadows are so pretty and flattering, plus they have an amazing texture and they're easy to work with. I plan on increasing my velvet collection. (:

Third time, still no charm for me. This is my third velvet eyeshadow, and we just don't get along for some reason. It looks gorgeous in the pan, sort of like UD Sin. But it goes on as an overly sparkly sheer skintone colour for me. It could be workable, but I have tons and tons of way better shadows, so this is going up for swap.

Really pretty champagne pink colour, easy to blend and very creamy, although it's a powder. GREAT shade for base or highlght.

My first review...this is a HG shadow for me! I was wary of the pink undertones, but it's such a pretty and flattering color. I'm green eyed, very fair with peach/pink complexion, dark auburn hair (dyed from my dirty blonde natural color). The consistency and quality is really good. So much better than Mac IMO.

I love this eyeshadow! Its light pink with a hint of beige. As another reviewer said, it looks shimmery but it really doesn't shimmer, it "glimmers". The price is amazing simply because of how much product you are getting! The texture is soft, extremely pigmented, and with no fallout. I would definitely repurchase any of the benefit velvet eyeshadows!

Leggy, as others have stated, is a beautiful nude pink neutral wash with a bit of shimmer. In the pan, it looks quite shimmery, and I was initially a bit skeptical about it, but it is much more toned down on the lid. I would say it "glimmers" more than shimmers. In any case, it's beautiful, and brightens the entire eye area without being too light or appearing white against my fair skin.
The texture is to die for. The shadow is extremely finely milled, and applies in a buttery, velvety manner. Blending is a breeze! It melts into the skin, and lasts all day over a primer.
This is truly one of the best-quality shadows I've tried, and one of the prettiest colors with one of the loveliest finishes. For $18, I know it isn't a bargain to some, but it is to me. I've paid much more for far inferior results in the past. I am definitely a BeneFit shadow convert!

There are lots of similar colors out there but this one is really THE BEST! Quality, transparency, light flattering shimmer - everything. Very feminine pinkish-champagne. Better than Stila, Mac, By Terry, etc. Would repurchase by sure.

This is a really nice neutral pink. It's not candy pink, and it's not a rose, either. It's just neutral. it has some shimmer to it, but nothing that will make you look like a teenybopper. I wouldn't even call it 'sparkly'. This is just a nice color to brighten up your eyes and look feminine. The staying power is good, especially when you use a primer. I just wish these shadows weren't $18 US. But I still find myself shelling it out...because I love them!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Green
Gorgeous pink-champagne color. It's kind of like a subdued version of Stila's Kitten, which I find to be way too bright and frosty. This is a lot easier to wear. The quality is amazing... it applies like butter.
